More Bad News For Kavanaugh: Ex-Girlfriend of Friend Who Allegedly Witnessed Assault Offers to Speak to Investigators

Mark Judge is one of the few alleged to have witnessed Brett Kavanaugh's assaults. He isn't talking — but his ex is.

One of the only people alleged to have actually witnessed the incident in which Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is accused of assaulting Christine Blasey Ford at a house party in the early 1980s is his friend Mark Judge, who Ford claims stood by and laughed.

Judge has told the Senate Judiciary Committee he has no memory of the party, but refuses to testify under oath and went into hiding in a beach house in Delaware.

Despite this, one other person close to Judge seems willing to give information, according to Greg Sargent of the Washington Post: his ex-girlfriend, Elizabeth Rasor. In fact, Rasor is reportedly prepared to testify to the Senate or to the FBI.

Judge’s college girlfriend, Elizabeth Rasor, is represented by lawyer Roberta Kaplan, who sent a letter to the Judiciary Committee today. The letter, which was provided to me by a senior Senate Democratic aide on the committee, says that Rasor “would welcome the opportunity” to speak to “agents of the FBI as part of a reopened background investigation” into Kavanaugh’s conduct.

In The New Yorker's story that broke the name of Kavanaugh's second accuser, Deborah Ramirez, Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer wrote that Rasor remembers Judge “had told her ashamedly of an incident that involved him and other boys taking turns having sex with a drunk woman.” Judge did not name Kavanaugh in this incident, but it cuts strongly against Judge's prior claim that “no horseplay” with women happened while he and Kavanaugh were at Georgetown Prep.

It remains to be seen whether she can cast any light on the Ford case, or on Kavanaugh's behavior.
